Becoming an Experiential Educator
Becoming an experiential educator involves honoring the full cycle of experiential learning by playing multiple roles in the learning process. Highly effective educators do not rely solely on one role. Rather, they organize their educational activities in such a manner that they address all four learning modes—experiencing, reﬂecting, thinking, and acting. As they do this, they lead learners around the cycle, shifting the role they play depending on the stage of the cycle they are addressing. If you are an educator, trainer, instructional designer, or manager, you will benefit from this program.
We provide the assessments that will support your Experiential Learning programs.
